Buy stiff neck worksheetA stiff neck can occur when the neck muscles get tight or are not working correctly. These simple neck stretches should help relax the neck muscles and help decrease the neck stiffness.

Starting with a chin tuck is a great way to help loosen up the neck muscles, and it also helps reset the neck muscles that are used most with posture.

Next, stretches like the upper trapezius and levator scapulae stretch do a great job of releasing tension and pain in the neck. These muscles often get overworked when people are stressed.

Finally, an anterior scalene stretch and a neck rotation with an opposite thoracic rotation stretch should help loosen up the neck and the upper back area as well.
